Classics Club Spin #28 List

I’m going to attempt another spin. I had a play the last time which if I hadn’t essentially forgotten I could easily have read. I’ve put it on this list along with The Idiot and anything I felt was Autumnal feeling or at least not as Spring-y or Summer-y.

  1. An Anton Chekhov novel
  2. The Wimsey Papers by Dorothy Sayers
  3. A Good Man is Hard to Find or other Flannery O’Connor novel
  4. A Portrait of A Lady and/or Turning of the Screw by Henry James
  5. Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton
  6. Cymbelline
  7. Dracula by Bram Stoker
  8. Irish Faerie Tales by William Butler Yeats
  9. House of Mirth by Edith Wharton
  10. King John
  11. Macbeth
  12. Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis
  13. Richard III
  14. The Crucible by Arthur Miller
  15. The Idiot by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
  16. The Life and Adventures of Martin Chuzzlewit by Charles Dickens
  17. The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins
  18. The Old Curiosity Shop by Charles Dickens
  19. The Scarlet Letter and/or The House with Seven Gables by Nathanial Hawthorne
  20. Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

      I read a different Miller play for school ages ago, so kind of dreading it, but plays are short. Really hoping I’ll get the Moonstone.

  • Elizabeth

    This list has such a specific vibe to it I love it. I have read the Old Curiosity shop and Alice in Wonderland but I haven’t read any of the others.
    I just realized the Irish Faerie book was Yeats which makes me even more excited about that one. I think Skye might actually have that one which means I know what to look out for better.

      Yes, I was aiming for Autumnal, but I mainly been watching Castle with some occasional fluff reading, so we’ll see how I do.
